The Strawberry Finch, also known as the Red Avadavat, is a small bird who is commonly found in Asia.

They’re similar in size to sparrows, and the females are brown and grey with random white spots.

The males are quite similar in colour to the females when they’re not in mating season.

However, when mating season begins, the males’ plumage transforms into a beautiful, deep, red hue in order to attract mates.
